Two arrested on drug charges in Pittsfield

PITTSFIELD - A drug bust Friday morning in Pittsfield turned up both illegal drugs and guns.

The Somerset County Sheriff's Office reports the raid happened just before 9 a.m. at a home on Main Street.

 

A search of the home turned up several grams of fentanyl powder, numerous firearms, almost $3,000 in cash and other evidence related to the drug business.

 

Brian Leavitt, 30, and Ashleigh Richmond, 26, are both charged with aggravated trafficking and possession of a scheduled drug.

 

Officials said Leavitt may face additional charges once all the seized evidence is tested and weighed.

 

A Maine drug agent and Pittsfield police also took part in the raid as part of an ongoing effort to crack down on illegal drugs in Somerset County.
